How did you get into fishing? 

My fishing career began at 10 years old in Nova Scotia, chasing anything that would bite off the local docks and waterways. An industry recognized fly tier and Atlantic salmon angler, I migrated to Montreal, where I turned my passion to tournament fishing and the

St. Lawrence River system, home of some of the best bass fishing in Canada. Over the years I have been invited as a guest speaker at many events to share tournament techniques and passion for teaching others how to be more successful at putting bigger fish in the boat. In 2006 I expanded the audience through the creation of Fishin-Canada.net, which has grown to become the premier bilingual source for bass fishing information on the internet. I can be seen at many of my signature, “RIPPLE,” tournament events, fishing shows and various gatherings. In 2012 I launched another initiative on social media. The Mike & Scotts BS session podcast was released to bring the latest tournament news, technology innovations and Bass fishing community buzz to a nation wide audience.”
